Hello! Thank you for stopping in to see my paintings.
If you are looking for an oil portrait, you have come to the right place. You can see samples of my commissioned portraits on the following pages, along with pet portraits, landscapes and still lifes.

A custom oil portrait is the most personal, enduring gift one can give or receive. For over ten years, I have been specializing in oil portraiture—the most satisfying genre for me. When I present a portrait, the resulting emotions are wonderful: surprise, wonder, wistfulness and pure joy. Many people find themselves in tears when they receive a permanent reminder of those they love, or of themselves. Nothing could be more satisfying for me than portraying happiness through my oil portraits.
To celebrate all the big events in life, a portrait is the perfect, constant reminder. For a child’s birth, first steps, graduation, marriage—nothing could be more delightful than marking those times with a custom portrait. And to memorialize the people who are no longer with us, a painted portrait is a timeless reminder of the loving, supportive relationships we have known.
Custom portraits can be done with photographs—either those I take, or those given to me. Anyone who would prefer to sit for his portrait could either come to my Manhattan studio, or I could go to their home. The process is simple. I need about an hour to take the photos, talk to the subjects, and make sure I feel a connection that I can translate into my painting. I then present a sketch to have the composition approved, and to talk about colors.
Within several weeks to two months the portrait will be completed. Changes can be made even at this point. I want the recipient to be thoroughly delighted with the result, and I will do everything possible to please the client.
Please see the FAQ page, and the Prices page to see that this is a surprisingly affordable, easy way to give a long lasting gift of love.
Hope to hear from you!
